Bed Crowns Fit For a King

My fascination with antique doll crowns trickles down to bed crowns as well. I love a draped bed and using a crown is a fun and practical way to achieve this look. Coronas use less fabric than with a traditional canopy treatment and they do not interfere with hanging light fixtures, ceiling fans or air ducts.



Whether you are looking for something ornate or simple in design there are a variety to choose from.



They can be hung from the wall or from the ceiling and always add a sense of old world drama
to a bedroom.



It would be nice if there was a selection of crowns with a more modern design style. I haven't found any yet. I might just have to design some!
